Reading Philip R. Klein's Mail

Philip offers another letter to himself in his latest additions to his "Reader Mail" page on the Southeast Texas Political Review:

From Beaumont Texas :

...This Board NEW what [Carrol Thomas] was going to do about 3 months ago but this way they can say they didn't have any thing to do with her hiring."

In 29 words, I see several of Philip's typical grammatical tells, such as uppercase letters to stress a poor point, a malapropism in the case of "new," the lack of proper punctuation, mispelling "anything," and bad sentence construction.

Note to Philip: Do you have any comment on why the purported mail on your Reader Mail page is written in exactly the same bad style as your regular articles, Buddy?
